The State Russian Museum holds a wonderful collection of portraits by Valentin Serov (1865-1911), many of which became classic of the Russian art at the turn of XXth century. On the other hand, Serov himself used to underline that he was not only a portraitist. The new exhibition, dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the artist, presents him as a master of historical, genre and landscape painting and author of the pieces of art which largely anticipated the experiments of the Russian Avant-garde.

The exhibition includes about 250 examples of Serov's painting, sculpture and graphic work from the Russian museum and other collections. The visitors will be provided with a unique opportunity to see the panel "Christ walking upon water" performed by Valentin Serov and Konstantin Korovin for the parish church of P. Tretyakov and V. Konshin's manufacture in Kostroma.

The exhibition is supported by OAO LUKOIL, the Unident Group and the U-Art Charitable Foundation for Culture, Iveta and Tamaz Manasherov.
